Cheesy Broccoli and Ham Quiche Recipe

Cheesy Broccoli and Ham Quiche Recipe

This is a great way for overnight guests to start the day. Chock-full of cheese, ham and broccoli, the quiche features an easy crust made of frozen hash browns. And because it cooks in the microwave oven, it doesn't heat up the kitchen. -Sue Armstrong, Norman, Oklahoma
